    DARK MATTER is a project in the shape of a pictorial installation that proposes the creation of a narrative related to the idea of transformation, and to reflect on the immaterial ecosystem of networks we live in.

    Sheltered memories

    Ana Rakel Ruiz de Sabando

    Through a process of searching the streets of Tehran, and taking the Kooshk space as a starting point, Ana Rakel Ruiz de Sabando is going to collect abandoned objects that will act as a basis for this project and as a uniting thread for the collective and individual memories of the city's people.

  • Coche de plástico en un palet

    Natalia Suárez, Gómez Selva

    Coche de plástico en un palet (Plastic car on a pallet) arose from the need of the artists Natalia Suárez and Gómez Selva to work with things that they had found. Through the connection of their lines of work they aim to transform and bring new meaning to things regarded as foreign objects, using what is discarded by others as their raw material.

    Dormen os peixes de olhos abertos

    Nele Wohlatz

    Three outsiders in a tropical city, passing through places that could be anywhere. A condominium tower with white, empty rooms, made in China bric-a-brac stores, a shark-infested beach, the sea. Lixue, Ah, and Bo live in a reality that sometimes seems like fiction and, perhaps, a prediction of the future for the world's cities. Three verses in an incomplete song, but who is speaking through whom? The alienation of the three, who are so different, yet so similar.

    El agua

    Elena López Riera

    It is summertime, and the threat of a powerful storm hangs over a town in the Spanish Levant. Ana is 17 years old and has grown up in the shadows of her mother who disappeared in the last flood, becoming phantasmagorical legend, a character for the townswomen who say that the water there is always mixed with death. In this electric atmosphere before the storm, Ana meets Jose, her first love.

    918 gau

    Arantza Santesteban Pérez

     In the minuscule cell of a police van, a woman that has spent many years in prison told me: to be able to explain what prison is like, you need to have slept in one. Nearly a decade ago, I spent 918 nights in prison. This film is about what it means to live in an isolated world without images.

  • Manuel Abramovich

    El oasis

    Manuel Abramovich

    "Why do you want to do porn?" they ask at the casting. "Because I love to feign pleasure". How does pleasure itself become a performance? If an adult film actor transforms their sexuality into a show, where do they find true pleasure.

  • Pili Aguado - Illustrator

    Your flowers do not wither

    Pili Aguado

    I conduct analogue, photographic, anonymous archive research and intervene using direct illustration. Working with intervention allows me to reinvent the narrative behind each image to create a collection which takes on its own importance, capable of combining the past with a ‘new idea’ brought in by the graphic interpretation.

    Manuel Casellas

    Galumphing proiektu inudea da eta soilik gauza bat du argi: helburu jakinik ez duen proposamen (apustu) esperimentala da eta izango da. Prozeduretan oinarrituko da, eta, hala, arte esperimentalek artearen ahalmenaren ardatz gisa duten balioa nabarmenduko du.
